I originally saw this on Rixa's Stand and Deliver birth blog, and it was just TOOOOO funny not to pass on. Plus it has a really important message, so I was an immediate fan.
This is for anyone who has ever been hassled, stared at, disapproved of, pressured to leave the room or told to go sit in the bathroom when breastfeeding in public.
I've been fortunate not to have been too hassled when breastfeeding my babies in public, but plenty of women have been asked to leave stores, to cover up, or to completely stop nursing.
This is for them! And for all us nursing moms everywhere, celebrating our willingness to give our babies what they needed, regardless of disapproval or raised eyebrows.
[If you have a little one who has watched Disney's Beauty and the Beast, you'll be able to sing along with this, which is really critical to attain the maximum silliness quotient.]
*Sing to the tune of "Be Our Guest" from Beauty and the Beast
See our breasts, see our breasts-
Everywhere, half-naked chests.
While we nurse,
The prudish curse
And wish we'd button up our vests.
Sorry, folks, look away
If we're too decollete,
but this is what boobs are made for,
Not those Wonderbras you've paid for.
We refuse to go feed
Hunched in bathroom stalls---indeed,
We're appalled that you would make such rude requests.
Would you agree to eat
Upon a toilet seat?
See our breasts, see our breasts, free our breasts!
